Reach For the Sky and Do it NOW

Why You Have Come Here

If you have arrived here seeking sanctity or blessing, then you will have to provide your own cloak and dagger. I only confess to the daily struggle to treat the world with the respect it has earned in my estimation. We all look to the sky and wonder. I feel the whisper of the ages calling and know not what flutter or ripple calls true. My approach is to touch your life in only the manner in which you prefer. As we all must suffer at some time, then I feel we all deserve, also, the right to laugh. My smile is my weapon, and at times my words also I use to defend.

Rose of Sharon

Rose of Sharon--the best buy for your money in my estimation. A shrub that costs just 50 cents a piece and blooms from now until September is the ultimate in yard adornment. I started out with white, purple, and pink ones but I guess through cross-pollination or some other botanical mystery, they are now all this gorgeous color to the left. They grow to huge heights and if your husband will be so kind as to wack them down in winter, they will split off from the pain trunks to form spectacular tropical glory.
